When Words Don't Work


When Words Don’t Work
When words don't work
You've left this plane
And opened yourself to
Other languages.

Of the body,
Of vibrations,
Dreams and intuitions,
Pools of communal feeling
Of which sadness is the fullest.

When they dont work,
It seems nothing's left,
But it only seems
that way.

Because there's always another vehicle that carries meaning
Another subtle sign that conveys
Another unspoken language to learn, just as there's
Another day.
